Ideology, Society and Medieval Religion
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 5, 2023

Fifteen years ago, the Social Church workshops initiated by Ian Forrest and Sethina Watson worked to introduce the study of the Church as an active agent in medieval society: in other words, putting people at the heart of the institutional church. Two decades later, we hope to bring a similarly fresh perspective to the study of medieval religion with The Medieval Church: From Margins to Centre, a two-day conference to be held on 26–27 June 2023 at the Humanities Research Centre, University of York, with the generous support of the Centre for Medieval Studies and the Department of History (York).

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS: Women’s Innovations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance  

We are writing about a call for contributors to an exciting new series at Bloomsbury. Women’s Innovations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance aims to capture the innovations women have made to the performing arts in their historical, geographical, and disciplinary diversity. This series seeks to broaden, celebrate, and recover historical awareness of these performance-based artmakers and their contributions; as such, it will showcase innovative, intersectional feminist historiographical approaches along with a history of women’s innovation in the field.

How do we understand our bodies? Our own bodies might be the first we experience as children, but how do we use this lived experience to understand the bodies of other people? The bodies of everyday folks we meet on the street, bodies that may range from healthy to diseased, able to disabled, sports fit to couch potato, real to represented, cared for to cared by, and everything you can think of in between—how do we think about people who are like us but also somehow different? What knowledges do such encounters between variAble bodies create?

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 16, 2022

Crossings is a new, open-access undergraduate interdisciplinary research journal at Swarthmore College that provides a forum for discourse on feminist theory and scholarship. The title is inspired by M. Jacqui Alexander’s Pedagogies of Crossing, which takes as its basis the concept of the Middle Passage, the Crossing, to understand Black transnational feminism’s erosion of boundaries —disciplinary conventions, respectability politics, national borders, and bodies that are gendered, sexualized, and racialized, among others kinds of categories—  in relation to empire and postmodernity.

It has been around 40 years since Vito Russo wrote the pioneering book The Celluloid Closet (1981) that catalogued the long painful history of gay representation in Hollywood film. The Celluloid Closet was produced during the AIDS epidemic and was one of many texts that drew attention to the lack of gay representation both before the 1980s and catalogued the changes that were occurring in gay media representation at the time. Lesbian representation has been historically represented by invisibility though was also impacted by the change in representation that the AIDS epidemic started. Gay male representation was always problematic while lesbians were invisible and heavily affected by the stigma of AIDS at this time.

Gaslighting in Global Victorian and Neo-Victorian Culture

updated: 
Sunday, December 11, 2022 - 2:49pm
Tara MacDonald
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

The term “gaslighting” has reentered the popular lexicon with a vengeance in recent years, appearing in countless news stories and opinion pieces on the subjects of sex, race, politics, medicine, and emotional abuse. It refers to “the experience of having your reality repeatedly challenged by someone who holds more power than you do,” as one Washington Postcolumn recently articulated it. Such pieces often note that the term is drawn from a specific twentieth-century source text: George Cukor’s 1944 film Gaslight, based on Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play of the same name, which tells the story of a sadistic husband actively working to make his wife believe she is losing her mind.
